Description

The Genesis Alliance is proud to be partnering with UNC Asheville for our 2017 Fall Meeting to be held on Thursday, October 19 beginning at 6:00 p.m. The RAMP has generously donated our space this year. In addition to the Genesis Fall Meeting agenda, we will be hosting an art auction that will benefit both organizations serving survivors of abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, or discrimination. The intention is not to alienate, but to educate and help us move forward toward healing and empathizing with each other. We hope to spark conversations around abuse, discrimination, sexual violence, about how the most intimate people in our lives may also be the most destructive and the need for prevention,healing, and resources. Many advocates in our community have come far in supporting survivors in the community, but we still have so much further to go. This is not the time to become complacent and risk failing those that still desperately need a safe haven.This is a time for us to continue advocating for and supporting survivors of these assaults, not only in Buncombe County, but throughout our region, state, and nation...for any individual that lives in fear or is at risk.

The art show will feature pieces by local artists that either identify as a survivor or has been partnered with a survivor to recreate their story in the artistic medium of their choice. Art has a very therapeutic property for survivors, but can also convey the impact, emotion, and mindset of each individual's situation.

Each piece will be auctioned off following the conclusion of our fall meeting. Winners can pay by cash, check, or credit card.

Parking: Is available around the periphery of the RAMP building. Please do not park across the street as you may be towed.

Attire: Semi-Formal

Time: 6-9:00 PM

Refreshments: Innovative and delicious Mocktails will be served. Light finger foods will be provided as well.
